ITALY, TUSCANY, SIENA, SARTEANO
In a wonderful location not far from the characteristic town of Sarteano, this beautiful 18th century house lies on an ancient rock and has a panoramic view of the entire Val d’Orcia.
The property measures 450 sqm, is on two floors, has a large and perfectly maintained garden with a Jacuzzi in the most panoramic point of the property. The house is near the ancient abbey of Spineto, and its grounds include an ancient road used in the past by the monks. The land with the property measures 14.5 hectares. It is possible to add a swimming pool.
Sarteano is an ancient village dating back to Etruscan times. It is known for its Etruscan tombs and the Etruscan museum, open to visitors. A very important event is the Civitas Infernalis, where for a week the village descends into medieval times thanks to themed events and concerts. However, the most famous event followed by all the citizens of the village and neighbouring towns is the Saracen Joust in mid-August, a medieval event that challenges five ancient contrade (districts) to a race with horses, a pole and a ring. The joust is much more, young people and adults together parading, jousting and flag-waving in medieval clothes, quite an experience!
The house is on two levels and measures a total of 450 sqm. From the main entrance there is a large living room with big windows overlooking the valley, a dining room and kitchen, a wc, laundry room and a bedroom with en suite bathroom.
From the ground floor we go up to the first floor with a beautiful open staircase, where we find 5 bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms and one with an external loggia that allows direct access from the garden. From outside there is access to the boiler room, a garage and covered parking spaces.
The property includes a large, well-kept garden, a large plot of land of about 14.5 hectares, made up of 4.1 hectares of arable land, 8.2 hectares of woodland and an olive grove of 2.2 hectares with about 150 trees in production. The land includes the ancient road used by the monks of the Abbey of Spineto, where there is an ancient cypress tree of about 150 years old.
The house was completely restored around the year 2000 and is in excellent condition thanks to regular maintenance carried out by the owners over the years. It is in need of minor modernisation work.
The farmhouse has been used up to now as a holiday home for a large family, but it can be a first home, second home, a B&B, an agritourism or a farm and can earn an income during the summer periods.
